Abstract: In Lebanon, women experience a high degree of gender-based violence reflected in the legislature and the general attitudes of the Lebanese people. Using the intersectional approach this paper will identify critical areas of gender-based violence perpetrated against several different groups of women including women among different religious groups, socioeconomic statuses, refugees living in Lebanon, and women in the LGBTQ community. This research project aims to discern the level of degree of this violence and identify prominent activists, advocacy groups, and movements who advocate against gender-based violence.
